Madison Keys Continues Western & Southern Open Run Taking Out Venus Williams In The Quarterfinals

Friday, August 16, 2019

Americans Venus Williams and Madison Keys in quarterfinals of 2019 Western and Southern Open.

American Madison Keys is into the semifinal round of the 2019 Western and Southern Open after winning the quarterfinal match against fellow American Venus Williams, 6-2, 6-3.

Keys made no changes in her gameplay from last night, remaining focused, hitting powerful precision shots and playing all offense, all the time.

The 'hurry-up' mode that Keys tends to play in has, in the past, often been detrimental to her match survival - not lately.  She appears to have applied new strategy to the process and is making it work.

Post match Keys stated, "I think I knew from the start that Venus was going to bring a lot of power, and I had to be ready for that - and more than that, I think my serve really helped me out at times."

In Saturday's semifinal on Center Court, Keys will go up against another American whose game is also fierce, Sofia Kenin.  Kenin advanced to the semifinals after world #1 Naomi Osaka retired from their quarterfinal match in the third set.
